  • Day 2 - Snowmobile Safari and New Year's Eve Celebrations

    Opt for a New Year Lapland adventure and mark the occasion with an unforgettable snowy celebration - Snowmobile Safari and New Year's Eve Celebrations

    What better way to start the day on your New Year Lapland holiday than on an invigorating snowmobile safari through the pristine Finnish wilderness? Spend four hours enjoying the beauty of nature and the thrill of the machine, stopping for lunch along the way. You will arrive back at your accommodation in plenty of time to prepare for this evening's celebrations.

    Warm up in the sauna before joining the rest of your group, for the New year's Eve party, in the log restaurant. The menu includes various Finnish and Lappish delicacies and you are advised to 'dress to impress' - though you should take some thermal clothes with you as parts of the celebration take place outside.

    One unusual highlight of the night is the traditional Finnish custom of predicting the future by casting molten tin into a container of water and interpreting the shape the metal takes after hardening. As the old year comes to an end, fireworks will lighten the inky Lappish skies, whilst a toast of sparkling wine will welcome in the New Year in Lapland. Back in the restaurant, there's time for more fireside drinks with friends before a traditional cheese platter is served to round off this magnificent night.

    Please note: all snowmobile drivers must have a full and valid driver's licence to take part in today's first activity.
